Beautiful New Orleans



Where even a young fellow, with a little backing from Mom and Dad, can consider a house like this.

Blackboard paint is neat. House listed today.

see you there! said...

Neat house, but looking at the floor plan made me curious. Do you really have to go through one bedroom to get from the kitchen to the dining room? I know these long narrow houses go through room to room but that seems an odd arrangement.

Very cute. I think we would call that a railroad house in OKC, or something like that (where the rooms join up in one line).

Frugal Scholar said...

@Darla--Yes! This is a shotgun house. Some have side halls, but the lot on this house is too narrow to accommodate that!

@Tory--HI!!!!!

@Shelley--I will have to look into the OK version. I love these houses.

Frugal Scholar said...

@Darla--I meant to add: you can use the rooms in different ways. So if Frugal Son were to have such a house, he might rent the front room to a friend and use the back room himself. That way, each would have an entrance to a bedroom, and the center would be a common space.

I looked this up

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Railroad_apartment

and perhaps this is a shotgun house as someone has mentioned. Railroad houses have a hallway. So I've learned something new!
